The long-anticipated and pandemic-delayed Silveri Hong Kong - MGallery opened on Hong Kong's Lantau Island earlier this summer.

This is the collection's first Hong Kong property and it cites a 'modern manor house in Tung Chung' as its style inspiration.

The property's moniker - 'Silveri' - is influenced by the former silver mines of Lantau; a silver decor and metallic motifs have been incorporated into the interior design.

Facilities include a lush garden and lawns, a 25m outdoor pool and a fitness area. Twelve signature suites surround the gardens, with outdoor terraces and private plunge pools or outdoor heated jacuzzis offering views over the emerald Lantau mountains.

The hotel team is on-hand to curate 'Memorable Moments' for guests (a signature service of the MGallery brand), from private helicopter tours over Lantau, to hiking adventures in Tai O and excursions to nearby Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Dining spots at the hotel include The Pavilion Bar - with knock-out views for sunset cocktails, a 'Fresh' coffee bar, and upscale modern bistro The Enclave which also serves up weekend brunches.

"From sunset cocktails with unforgettable mountain views, to al fresco private dinners on the terrace with lively weekend brunches, out entire hotel team looks forward to creating many inspirational experiences for our guests, as they kick-back amid a refreshing contemporary and eco-chic setting," said complex general manager Guillaume Gallas.

Hong Kong's second MGallery property to open in as many months landed in the city's bustling centre last month. Hot on the heels of Lantau Island’s Silveri Hong Kong - MGallery is AKI Hong Kong - MGallery.

AKI Hong Kong - MGallery is located on Jaffe Road in the city’s bustling Wan Chai district. Its moniker, ‘AKI’, means ‘clear, bright crystal’ and refers to the hotel’s glistening glass structure.

AKI Hong Kong - MGallery is walking distance from the shopping district of Causeway Bay, Times Square and the Hong Kong and Exhibition Centre. The Hong Kong Arts Centre, Tamar Park, Wan Chai Heritage Trail and a plethora of restaurants and bars are all nearby.

Hotel facilities include all-day dining space Tangram and a third floor lobby lounge serving light and healthy food.

“With the new AKI Hong Kong - MGallery and The Silveri Hong Kong - MGallery, we have every expectation that locals and travellers will absolutely fall in love with MGallery’s characteristic way of balancing urban sophistication, moments of tranquillity and trendsetting dining concepts,” said Accor Greater China chief executive officer, Gary Rosen.

“MGallery is ambitiously expanding across Greater China and around the world… We look forward to bringing even more MGallery hotels to key destinations in Greater China in the coming years.”
